Ramyun Recipe

This month we come to you with an extremely simple recipe; one for those lazy days that demand a quick dinner whilst watching your favourite Korean tv show or drama.

The base for this recipe is any instant ramyun of your choice. If you’ve never tried any before, we recommend the most basic; Shin Ramyun. You can then spice up your ramyun by adding a number of toppings. You can pretty much add anything you like but we’ll give you some ideas below. Ramyun is most popular amongst students seeking a quick and filling meal, especially during busy exam periods. After all, we all get a little busy sometimes. We hope you enjoy.

Serves 1, Cooking time: 10 minutes

  • 1 package of Korean ramyeon
  • 2½ cups water
  • 1 egg (skip this for a vegan recipe)
  • 1 slice American/Violife (or similar dairy-free alternative) cheese (optional)
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • A few thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup cooked rice (optional)


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a small pot.
  2. Add the noodles to the water and add the included soup powder to the boiling water, along with mushrooms or any other vegetables. Cover and boil for 1 minute.
  3. Give the noodles a stir.
  4. Add the egg if using and give it a stir to break the egg up.
  5. Add the provided dried vegetable package and cook for another two minutes.
  6. Turn off the heat and add the spring onion and cheese slice if using.
  7. Serve out of the pot with some rice.

If you want to eat in true Korean student style, eat your ramyun with some kimbab (rice and vegetables rolled in roasted seaweed sheets), dipping the kimbab in the ramyun soup as you eat.
